Harry lives to fight another day! Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole to return in 2013
Harvill Secker announces new Jo Nesbo novel
The Random House Group UK is delighted to announce the publication of a new Jo Nesbo Harry Hole novel, putting an end to fans’ fears that their favourite fictional detective had finally met his match at the end of the last book, PHANTOM. POLICE will be published by Harvill Secker in autumn 2013.
Fans will also be delighted by the news that COCKROACHES, the second book in the Harry Hole series, will be published shortly after POLICE. With its publication, readers will have access to all ten books in Jo Nesbo’s bestelling series. THE BAT, the first ever Harry Hole novel, was published for the first time in English this October by Harvill Secker and went straight into the Sunday Times bestseller list.
POLICE continues the story of PHANTOM, which was a Sunday Times #2 bestseller when it was published in March this year, spending 7 weeks in the top ten. The Harry Hole novels have sold over 14 million copies worldwide, over 3 million of those in the UK. Jo Nesbo is regarded as one of the world’s leading crime writers, and his novels are published in more than 50 languages.
POLICE will be Jo Nesbo’s ninth internationally acclaimed novel featuring Inspector Harry Hole to be translated into English, and the tenth in the series. In the new novel a series of killings that echo unsolved murders is sweeping Oslo, and the killer is targeting the police.
